What an Accident Lawyer Does For You

Many people do not contact a lawyer because they don’t understand fully what they can do for them. However, it is actually very important to contact an attorney as soon as you can after you have been injured in a car accident. This one-step can save you a ton of heartache and headaches later on down the road.

The first thing a lawyer will do for you is advise you on medical care. If you have not sought out medical care already, the lawyer will certainly tell you to do this. He or she will also likely advise you to follow up with the medical care to ensure that you have addressed all of your injuries completely until total recovery is achieved.

The second thing the lawyer will do for you is work with the other party’s insurance agency to ensure that your claim is processed completely and correctly. Many insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying out a claim. It is your attorney’s job to make sure that your claim is not denied, and that you are approved for the maximum limits allowed by the policy and your situation. The lawyer will make sure that all of your medical bills are covered, and that your property damage is covered.

Even though the attorney will make sure the insurance company pays out to the full extent of the policy, there may be expenses not covered by the insurance. If your medical bills exceed the maximum benefit of the policy, you could have out of pocket expenses. The same may be true if your car is a newer one and is completely totaled in the accident. You may also have other expenses and losses that are not covered by the policy, such as lost wages due to necessary time off because of the accident or your injuries. If you have young children you may also have child care expenses due to not being able to care for your children. There is always the possibility of emotional distress as well.

It is the duty of the lawyer to make sure you are compensated for these losses. This is usually done by taking the other party to court in a lawsuit. The lawyer will arrange everything, filing the necessary paperwork and going to court to represent you in the case. He or she will ensure that all possible compensation is sought in the lawsuit.

Once the lawsuit is won, the lawyer’s job is still not finished. You have to make sure that you actually get the money that you were awarded. This is accomplished typically through wage garnishment of the guilty party. Wage garnishment is difficult if not impossible to obtain without the help of an attorney. This is one of the most important reasons to have an accident lawyers, is to make sure that you get the money that is owed to you by the other party whether it is out of their pocket or through the insurance company.
